Back blogging after some busy time. Generally nothing has changed much… Winter is still here, not really looking like leaving soon and giving way to Spring. Snow is falling almost every day with sometimes a ray of sunshine. Real happiness ! Mostly though the main shade you see all around is grey and white and it makes you dream of colours. Plenty of colours !“Let the Spring come in !”
A good time for staying inside and quilt, one of my favourite activities in every season. Through Flickr I came across this blog I visited with great pleasure :
It inspired me to look for my scraps of bright and colourful fabrics. Soon I started sewing my own calendar quilt. Here are the three first months of this year, Winter colours I imagined for January, February and March.Thanks to everyone on Calendar quilt challenge for their wonderful blog and creativity.
One of my favourite colours is orange. Looking around for this warm shade that would brighten up my Winter, I spotted a basket full of oranges, so juicy and sweet, just begging to be put into jars… Which I did ! more colours, scents, the cardamon, cinamon and vanilla adding a touch of sunshineThose are the colours of my Winter, shades that look and taste good. Colours that sooner or later will bring back Spring !
